Application for admission is done online through Lancashire County Council but if you have any questions or need help applying our school secretary Mrs. Pullin will happily help you.

A child starts school on September 1st in the academic year of his or her fifth birthday.

We have a number of events throughout the year in school and encourage you to bring your children along to these events to get to know the school and the staff before they start.
